The Crnic Institute is one of the only academic centers in the United States fully devoted to Down syndrome research. 

We support a thriving ecosystem of investigators studying Down syndrome via pilot funding grants and access to centralized resources, including a biobank of human samples and a mouse colony for various mouse models of Down syndrome. Altogether, faculty and their teams​ involved in these programs constitute the "Crnic Supergroup."

The Crnic Supergroup is arguably the largest geographical cluster of researchers studying DS in the world.​

Crnic Supergroup faculty members and their teams meet on a monthly basis​ to hear and discuss research progress from other Down syndrome investigators and network over lunch. They come from a wide variety of backgrounds to work together on Down syndrome. ​Learn more about our faculty.
